The Student Entertainment Board decided for the 2010 homecoming week, there will be no Homecoming king and queen, breaking a tradition held since1907.
A lack of student excitement has led to this decision and the decision of 86 percent of campuses across the country since 1959.
“There could be more successful events,” said Susan J. Wells, Panhellenic Vice President of Programming and Development. “Students just aren’t interested in the homecoming royalty anymore. It’s time for a new tradition.”
